Apart from car boot sales, and an Art exhibition, watching French Open tennis on TV, reading, cutting grass and painting bits in the kitchen the other thing I did over the holiday weekend was to pop out to a local Flower Festival in a village church.
The theme was Pastimes. I brought home the leaflet of who did what and the subject but now can't find it anywhere - a mystery.
I know this one below is celebrating 150 years of Palmer's - the village bakery. In the same building and owned by the same family - quite an achievement.
This one below must be to represent gardening
This one below is bird watching. I think it was done by the daughter of PatC who I was at school with in the 1960's. She comments sometimes and came into the charity shop on the last morning I was helping there, I hope we will meet up for a coffee and a catch up sometime.
This next one is to represent going to Movie Nights which they have in the village hall each month
And finally - the joys of foraging.
There were very few people in the church looking round and I didn't stop for a cuppa and cake.
Last year this was one of the first things I visited (with Son and DiL) after Colin died. Looking back I can see how numb I was still feeling although I didn't recognise it as such at the time.
I can also see how much better I am now - one year on.
Many thanks for comments yesterday. I didn't get round to replying or even reading other blogs because of a long tiring day out at The Suffolk Agricultural Show. It was a tad chilly but as interesting as always. I took several photos so lots to share next week when I get round to uploading. Thank goodness it didn't start raining until 7pm when I was home - with the heating on!
